Key problems in health and nutrition are overweight and obesity in children as well as elderly. Too little people eat fruit and vegetables and a quatre of the inhabitants do not participate in physical activity. Special attention need the socio economic health differences. People with low education and low income have more health problems and a less healthy lifestyle.
